Creator / Paul W.S. Anderson
Paul William Scott Anderson (born 4 March 1965) is an English director and producer. He has largely stayed in the realm of being a journeyman director, basically someone called in to make a movie under the direction of the suits. While that might earn some derision as someone who "makes someone elses' movie," he has taken those movies that could easily become merely a paycheck and turned them into something rather watchable and surprisingly entertaining that usually does well in box office.

He has carved out a niche in the business of being hard-working and staying within budget. His first major breakthrough was directing the first Mortal Kombat movie, which managed to get some major critics supporting it, appeal to a mainstream audience and make its money back. Today the movie is regarded as a bit of a Cult Classic. He has since been involved with several other video-game inspired movies, all with a similar degree of respect, mainly the Resident Evil movies. In other words, he is the "rich man's Uwe Boll."

He also suffers from an addiction to Sequel Hooks. Of his directorial efforts, all but Pompeii (obviously) have some variation on Bolivian Army Ending, The End... Or Is It?, or And the Adventure Continues. Fortunately for him, almost all have been followed up on at some point, for better or worse.

He's married to Milla Jovovich.

Not to be confused with Paul Thomas Anderson, although both have gone by merely Paul Anderson before, or with science fiction author Poul Anderson.
